This weeks Sunday Challenge on UK Stampers is F for face, here is my tag.
The background was stamped with a swirly background stamp the Distress paint in picket fence was applied randomly, whilt this was drying I stamped the face (part of a collage stamp) onto a separate piece of thin card then ripped around 3 sides of it.
The 'f' was painted in sandel dabber paint, sanded when dry to make a really smooth surface was then stamped with the same stamp, (to pick out the exact part of the stamp I used the stamp with the rubber face upwards and place the letter carefully over where I wanted the image to be.) The lips were coloured using Le Plumes and a water brush and a small amount was added to the cheek area too. This was then adhered to the main face making sure to line it up carefully. This was then attached to the tag.
The 'jar' was stamped onto thin card and cut out and stuck to the background, the words (from Elenor Rigby by the Beatles) I printed on the computer.
